    Summary

    “Tell me, what sort of music do you listen to?” Thorin asks him, raising an eyebrow. “Do you prefer glam or thrash?”

    “I—what? Simon & Garfunkel is my favorite band. I like The Smiths if I’m in a bit of a strop, Bowie if I’m feeling adventurous, I suppose,” Bilbo answers, aware there might be a note of snark coloring his words because, well. He was set up, meant to sound like a fool no matter how he answered, and he does not appreciate rude conversational traps like that. He does not appreciate anything about this situation. He does not appreciate the small, crooked, tight-lipped smile that flashes across Thorin’s face at his response, and he does not appreciate the way it makes his stomach drop.

    or,

    After his eccentric advisor deliberately botches Bilbo's housing application, he is forced to sublet a room with thirteen metal heads living in a condemned frat. He barely expects to survive the journey, let alone fall in love.

    Summary

    Business pulls Bilbo to the town of Scary, but it is the journey home that changes everything for Bilbo. Family, it seems, comes in many forms, and quite possibly in the form of a scarred, silent shade of a Dwarrow Bilbo finds in a ditch.

    Family, though, is a tricky thing, and there's fun to be had when they come looking for their kin.

    Summary

    For Thorin, it started at five with a curse from a wizard.
     
    “I curse your house for now until I have what I seek! Magic has robbed me of that which should be mine, and it shall be a blight on your house from now on. By magic, all your family will burn when the first bears that which was entrusted. When the heart meets with the heart of the line, desolation will come!"

    Years later Thorin would remember that night and his mother’s scream. He would think of the trembling of his baby brother. He would remember huddling with the sons of Fundin in a niche till the guards rescued them.

    He would remember two blanket covered bodies. He would not understand that one was his mother until he was older.

    The wizard had escaped, but Thraín reacted to the curse instantly.

    The Arkenstone that the wizard sought was locked away. Magic was banished from inside Erebor. They closed their doors to outsiders, using Dale to trade instead of their own marketplace. Allies were not let inside the kingdom unless they agreed to be stripped of all magic. Wizards were sent away, magical weapons melted, and magical jewelry destroyed.

    No one expected that a young hobbit would be the one to change it all.

    Summary

    “This is a trinket I was given at your birth. I have never shown you it as the time was not right before now.” Thrain opened his palm to reveal a golden band. It was smoothed by touch and unadorned. Not spectacular, but Thrain would hardly hold onto such a trinket if it was not worth something.

    “The wizard who gave it to me was quite adamant that you should have it when you were of age.” The king held it out to Thorin. The metal was cool to the touch, but quickly warmed up in the heat of his hand. He ran his fingers along it and nearly shuddered. He could feel it throbbing, nearly vibrating with a strange sort of energy.

    “This ring is not meant for you to wear, of course. It is too small for you. This ring is made to fit only the person that will be your Sanzeuh. You have thirty days in which to find him.”

    Thirty days. Thirty days to find something as ridiculous as true love, or he'd have to marry a beardless, nagging dwarrowdame. Thorin Oakenshield didn't think it could happen.

    And then Bilbo Baggins popped into his life. Though, Thorin could have done without the cats, shoes, and girly bits. Still, the course of true love never has run smooth. And the peppers were delightful.
